This piece was found in the ruins of Yaxchilon and represents a ritual scene illustrating the mastery of the Mayan sculpture. It depicts a woman delivering a mask or a jaguar head to a dignitary or to a high priest. The archeologists found that the only way of knowing the rank or class of the figures in this type of lintel was by reviewing the design in the clothing and the attitude of the personage.
